Open Patterns Dialog Layout
Tag label

Custom tag to generate control label which serves as a trigger to display context help for some control associated with the label. The association between the control and its label is made using id, since both the label, the control and the context help should be constructed by other dialog custom tags using the same id or placed within a dialog row or a column of dialog row with the same id.

<dialog:label accesskey="F">First name:</dialog:label>

allowfocusfalsetruejava.lang.StringBoolean flag specifying if user can focus on the text of the label for example when tabbing through the controls of the dialog. If focus is allowed, the label can gain focus and user can display the context help associated with that control by pressing Enter or Space. If focus is not allowed, the context help can be displayed by pressing ALT+F1 when the control itself has the focus. This value should be true or 1 to allow focus. This value can be also configured globally using property oss.webui.helplabel.focus. Default value is false.
